We appreciate the effort of going out, spending time and taking pictures of road works, of course

I appreciate and enjoy the photos. However, I would request that they be limited to about 10 per post. If you have 50 photos to post, I would appreciate it if you would arrange them in 5 posts of 10 photos per post. That helps to keep the pages from taking forever to load.

Precisely great photos but literally a few would do. We are not geologists or so to watch "tones" of pics of ... tones of sand and enjoy it. Have a mercy bro.
It reminds me my time in a sand pit when I was 5 except that my bulldozer toys were smaller.

Very good news Finally most of the S8 between Wrocław and Łódź and Warsaw will be under construction

Good news indeed, but I wish the S8 were under construction all the way to Białystok. I'm not complaining though. I realize that resources are limited and I'm happy that two sections between Warsaw and Białystok are under construction. I'm confident that the S8 will be complete by 2020 if not sooner.

Hm, that S8 between Lodz and Warsaw is a bit problematic. I hope in the future there will be a plan to build S8 extension from Lodz towards somewhere around Rawa Mazowiecka. Otherwise it makes no sense go down to Piotrkow Trybunalski in order to get to Warsaw via S8.

Right. Based on current plans, it will make much more sense to use the A1 and A2 between Łódź and Warsaw to connect from the S8 to the S8. An S-class road directly from Babichy to Rawa Mazowiecka would make a lot of sense, but in my opinion is not a high priority. I think the next part of the S8 that should be put out to tender after January is Wyszków to Ostrów Mazowiecka.

I think they did this on purpose to attract east-west traffic via A2, and leave A1+S8 for Katowice - Warszawa traffic. I think it may not be a bad idea, if you combine N-S + E-W traffic on S8 Piotrków Trybunalski - Warszawa it may need to be widened to 2x3 lanes soon. As far as I know this road already carries 40 000 vehicles per day.

You are right Chris. They want people to drive on tolled A2. Beside that there was a clash of two concepts how to build S8. Previous one was to put S8 from Wielun to Piotrkow Trybunalski via Belchatow. In that case it would make sense to stick to S8 all the way from Wroclaw to Warsaw while driving. Few years ago strong Lodz lobby changed that plans and now S8 goes as a southern bypass of that city which is of course very beneficial for people from Lodz.

Yes, but it would need to be 2x3 only from Warsaw to Rawa Mazowiecka -- if at all. That's about 70 kilometers.

I'm still of the opinion that if a good road is not built from Babichy to Rawa Mazowiecka then the need for 2x3 between Łódź and Warsaw will be even greater than the need for 2x3 would be between Warsaw to Rawa Mazowiecka if such a road were built. Anyway, I guess we'll have to wait to see what traffic is like on the DK72 after the local portions of the A1, A2, and S8 are completed.

As far as I know there was a lobby created by Łódź, because S8 was originally meant to go through Bełachatów and Piotrków Trybunalski.

A little translation may be necessary. I'm not sure if everyone understand Polish.

Not yet, anyway...

Seriously though, I agree, a little translation would do no harm.

Translation appears every time these charts pop up over here. Maybe we should make a bilingual version?

That's the best option

Yes, I like the idea of a bilingual version.

I have some limited ability to read Polish and I think I understand all these columns even though I don't perfectly understand the labels. I may have some nuances wrong, but here goes:
1. Road number
2. Part (location)
3. Length
4. Contracted (original) completion date
5. Currently expected completion date
6. Difference between 4. and 5. in days (current expectation of lateness)
7. Days until expected completion
8. Days already past 4.
9. Regional contracting authority
10. Contractor

Very good news. Do you also know when the contracts of S8 between Walichnowy and Łask were signed?
